Search interruption with move order adjustment

Post by Michael Sherwin » Thu May 23, 2019 7:08 am

At anytime during the search the best move may not be tried first. The best move may make itself known two or more ply later when it is searched and causes a beta cut or maybe just raises alpha significantly. So let's assume that we are at the point in the search where we are making a beta cut. The idea then is to check if the beta cut move can be played two ply earlier and lead to a beta cut, etc. :?:
